Want to know what will be showing here in theaters next spring? Read the current dispatches from the Cannes Film Festival, as the lag time between there and here seems to be anywhere from six to 12 months. I’ve been following the festival on Mike D’Angelo’s blog
at Nerve.com: Mike is writing an overview of the festival for next week’s Scene, but I couldn’t wait that long. So far, he has me psyched for the new Woody Allen (!!!), the Dardennes brothers’ The Child
, the Edward Norton cowboy movie Down in the Valley
, and Michael Haneke’s creep-out Hidden
. Not-so-good news about Egoyan, Cronenberg and Lars von Trier, though hope springs eternal.
